I finally have a few days off after finishing all my classes for this term and before going to Norway to visit my friend Olaya, so I thought since the weather is horrible (typical London: grey, rainy, cold), I might as well bake something. I found my inspiration in the wonderful blog Butter, written by Natasha, full of incredible recipes and truly beautiful pictures. My cookies don't look as good as hers but still taste pretty good! It is lovely to have that time to go shopping for the ingredients, have the kitchen all to yourself, put some Nat King Cole on and sing away while whisking eggs... makes me feel like Martha Stewart. My mamma should be proud.
